Book only on website (same is linked on IG, google, facebook, etc..) I DO NOT take books by phone, dm, or email unless otherwise stated. (During pandemic, ALL visitors require a mask).
I take ONE tattoo per day so you will be my sole focus! Booking an appointment is an official agreement to all terms mentioned.
Tattoo vs. Consultation booking
Tattoo: Official sessions + same day tattoo projects (no consultation or finalized design)
Consultation: 1 full hour of exploring ideas + option of 1 or 3 ("variation") finalized illustration of design (gives the absolute closest idea of how the tattoo will look).
A booking is closed?
Announcements are of reopening is made in the following order:
Instagram story or post: http://instagram.com/fydbac
. Appointment preparation
Please be sure to come:
+ Freshly rested, feed, and body clean!
+ Valid ID (drivers license, state ID, or passport) that'll match the name in your booking info.
+ Please bring NO outside material as "inspiration" or "reference".
. ADDITIONAL (If a tattoo session):
If possible, moisturize tattoo area with silicone based moisturizer 30-40 min. before arrival. (NO petroleum or Shea butter: Just silicone based)
ONE adult guest allowed.
LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME. I will tell you to reschedule + charge the fee if you bring a child under 15 with you. NOTE: when you arrive, if front doors are locked, please txt "your booking has arrived" to 424-236-2382
For 1 hour, we discuss ideas as you watch me sketch variations. Online or In-person available. Like tattoo, I only book ONE consultation a day, except for tattoo events.
When you come for consultation, please do not bring any outside materials unless approved beforehand: no images of other artwork to "inspire" or show what you want. YOU and our discussion are the inspiration!
There are two consultation options (aside from online or in-person):
1 design: no fee : You choose ONE of the sketches for me to take to a final version.
Variants: small fee : You choose 2-3 sketches I take to final illustrations, and you pick from those which you take home.
The 'variants' consultation fee DOES NOT go towards your tattoo session. It's ONLY to compensate for the multiple artworks I'll take to final.
To move forward to a final version, you must submit the deposit (see site for payment options and deposit amount). Only once the tattoo version is done, can you take home the original illustrative version. [note: I maintain the rights to ALL my work: more info]
Only those getting tattooed may enter the suite during consultation. No guest allowed at this time, not even in the waiting room.
.|. Wall art only?
Or want to take the illustrative version home before the tattoo is finished?
To take home the original piece (whether you wanted just wall art, or want it before the tattoo version is finished), you must pay a Take home rate: which is only determined AFTER I finish the piece.
If also getting the tattoo version, then the rate is applied as credit towards the tattoo sessions.
Take home rate:
This is decided at the moment a deposit is made. "Wall art only" CANNOT be changed to "+tattoo intended" rate.
$100/hr = wall art only
$What is fair = tattoo intended
Please bring the following (all are mandatory):
A clean healthy body (+ mask, during pandemic)
Valid ID (in case we proceed to a tattoo session).
NO outside images (unless we discussed it). Not for inspiration, exact copying, etc.
Unless you are getting a shared tattoo, it's preferred we engage in the consultation privately.

. Provide a pic of the intended area, and I can do sketch overs as we discuss.
. The charge is for compensation for such convenience, and does not go towards the tattoo.
Is one that matches on another person, or is designed to utilize both bodies as one piece when together, (while still being a piece in their own right).
+ Rate is NOT split. Normal rate/ deposit applies to all involved.
For both Consultation and Tattoo sessions
NO CHILDREN under 13yrs, unless you want them to help me with the tattoo.
After Consultation | Final Design
Three options are given at the end of consultation (see http://fydmi.ink for deposit (hourly rate) amount):
A: Straight to tattoo ['same day'
session]: Skip finalization and go straight to book tattoo session.
B: Finalization fee: Typically BEFORE you leave consultation, you choose ONE or up to THREE sketches I take to final. You KEEP the final piece at the final session of the tattoo version. Finalization fee Does NOT go towards tattoo.
C: Deposit + Variation: Sketches are emailed. Whenever ready, you choose THREE sketches I take to final.
Please give up to 1 month to receive an update. Currently, the scheduling is in a transitional phase, so running a bit slow. But you'll certainly be kept informed.
If no word after a month and a half (1 month + 2 weeks), feel free to reach out! That would mean both email and text failed to reach you!
Deposits and Variant payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. Even if the project is canceled going forward.
Final designs have no real deadline, but will be done as soon as possible: certainly within 3 months unless some life events cause delays (clients will be informed of such things).
ONE complementary SMALL revision allowed: Described in under 50 characters in length.
ALL revision requests after that, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, requires at least an $100 fee EACH request. No exceptions. Does not go towards tattoo or take home cost.
. About 'Color palettes'
Deposits apply towards 'color palette': done same day as consultation.
Can be requested BEFORE future session of main piece, or during 1st session of piece.
Your choice to have the palette as a stand alone, or be covered by the main tattoo project.
Client selection of colors to tattoo on a small area so they will have a better idea of what colors they like with their own melanated skin!
Recommend it's done same day as the 1hr consultation: so by the time it heals, the finalized tattoo design may be finished and we could get started on the actual tattoo. But it can be scheduled for another day after consultation as well.
If you opt to have me TRAVEL TO YOU, I will tell you which option to book, after you've paid the travel fee. No, I cannot book it for you.
Courtesy reschedule allowance is as follows:
ONE courtesy rescheduling.
Benefiters: TWO courtesy rescheduling.
More than the allowed rescheduling requires a fee* (subject to change without warning) that DOES NOT go towards your session. There is NO EXCEPTION to the allowance (unfortunately, even if an emergency), please do not ask.
*Additional Rescheduling fee: $20 / each rescheduling
Access your own booking wherever you placed the booking.
If I reschedule on you MORE than one time, I will give the option for you to cancel WITH refund of whatever deposit / prepayment was made.
If you paid a deposit: All the above applies.
If you HAVE NOT paid anything towards your tattoo (such as if it's a free tatt): You can only reschedule ONE TIME before the design is put on the market. You must pay some kind of hold or deposit to prevent anyone else from taking the design. All the above applies.
Rescheduling time frame .|
Before 24hrs of your appointed time: You can manage your booking on the site!
Within 24 hours of your appointed time: You must contact me directly.
No refunds for any bookings. No exceptions.
If you can't make the original appointment time, you must reschedule (see above).
Cancel BEFORE 24hrs of your appointed time: The deposit will still apply to your session.
Cancel Within 24 hours of your appointed time, then the 'Rescheduling fee' must be paid if you reschedule, (even if you have not used your allowed rescheduling).
|. Missed appointment
Any paid deposit becomes null and void.
No matter tha reason for the missed appointment (with no message received before the appointed time), if you do decide to reschedule, you must pay the NO SHOW fee* (subject to change without warning + does NOT go towards session) BEFORE you'll be allowed to book again, (pay a new deposit, etc). NO EXCEPTIONS. Please don't ask.
*No show fee: See booking info as you book.
Unexpected life happened and it's past the 24hr mark?
I'm afraid refunds are STILL not allowed. Please don't ask to be an exception. Rescheduling or putting the session on hold is the best option.
